Logitech’s LifeSize touted its UVC Engine for Microsoft Lync in what has been the leading product integration at the show. Everyone is integrating video with Lync and LifeSize is no exception.

The engine works with the LifeSize 220 series and the Passport room-based video system. These systems are fully operational with Lync, including registration, click-to-call and presence features. The engine works with the LifeSize 200 MCU to deliver HD conferencing.

The company stresses the product’s interoperability and that it can connect with other partners other than Lync.

Also garnering interest is the Unity 50 and 500, both all-in-one units that can be moved from room to room.

Unity 50 is a 24-inch 1080p monitor-sized LED-LCD (indeed, the screen can be used as an additional monitor when not being used for video). Its video quality is HD 720p30. It has an integrated camera with tilt and what the company says is excellent low-light performance. Video communications are point-to-point. It sells for $4,000.

The Unity 500 is an all-in-one that sells for $19,999. The display is a 1080p 40” HD high-contrast edge-lit LED. Its camera is 1080p30 HD with 10X zoom capability. It also ships with a next-gen phone for video and audio. The company is positioning the product for executive and small meeting rooms.
